A luau can be a blast, and, if your time allows for one, they are highly recommended. The better ones are at the higher price end, and you should book them in advance.
JUNE UPDATE: This luau is currently sold out over a month in advance. During the peak summer season, especially due to ongoing COVID capacity restrictions, availability is very limited and will likely be completely sold out soon. If you are a party of 4+ and don't see any availability that works for you, you can email us to be put on our waitlist; please include the # of people and all possible dates (Mon, Tu, Th, Fri, Sat). You may also want to consider our West Maui Luau.
Experience the tastes and sights of Hawaiian culture and history with the Te Au Moana (“The Ocean Tide”) Luau at the oceanfront Marriott Resort in Wailea. You’ll enjoy an all-you-can-eat feast of Hawaiian cuisine, an open bar, an Imu ceremony unearthing the pig cooking in a traditional underground oven, interactive activities such as island tattoos and hula dancing, and authentic and entertaining performances with vibrant costumes depicting the stories of Hawaii and the Polynesian people, culminating in the exciting fire-knife dance. All of this takes place with a scenic backdrop of a tropical beach and a setting sun over the Pacific Ocean.
Full current menu here. In addition, the open bar includes tropical cocktails like Hawaiian Mai Tais and a wide selection of liquors, wine, and beer.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The luau is operating. Temporary changes for everyone's safety and to comply with local regulations include: 1) reduced capacity with social distancing, 2) table service instead of buffet (except walk-up bar), 3) only one seating/price tier, 4) each party at a private assigned table, 5) no interactive activities, audience participation on stage, or flower lei, and 6) minimum of 2 people per booking (sorry, no parties of 1 can book). Please ensure your entire party is booked under one booking in order to sit together; parties at different tables may not mingle at the luau during COVID.
